Murilo “Ninja” Rua took to twitter today to officially announce his retirement.
“I would like to announce officially my retirement from PRO MMA fights tonight. It was an amazing run, and its a very tough moment … But there comes a time for all in life, and it’s time to move on. I am proud of all I did in MMA and all experiences I had … I will continue to work with MMA, doing seminars, teaching classes, training fighters, and doing my share to help our sport that I love so much.”
I can only hope him the best as he was the kind of fighter that put it all on the line for the fans every single time. He truly exuded fighting spirit in every sense of the phrase, as a fan knowing that he put all of his heart in every single second he was in the ring. He wasn’t the best fighter in the world, but he was always entertaining and as fans of athletes we can fully appreciate what a man Murilo “Ninja” Rua is.
